The Byron Martin Advanced Technology Center (ATC) is a hidden gem in the Lubbock community. The facility began 20 years ago as a partnership between Lubbock ISD, South Plains College and Market Lubbock (now LEDA); and since its inception, the campus has grown to offer so many different programs that both entities eventually outgrew the facility. South Plains College moved to a new location last summer and opened their Lubbock Center in the Fall of 2017. Lubbock ISD expanded throughout the original site, and added new program areas for students who are bused to the campus from all five LISD high schools.
Your tour of this innovative Career & Technical Education center will begin with a history of the facility, a description of the programs offered, and information about Advisory Committees that provide feedback from local business and industry to ensure that the ATC continues to meet the needs of the growing workforce in Lubbock and the surrounding areas.
